Index

Intro

Operators in this unit group operate machines to process yarn or thread into woven, non-woven and knitted products such as cloth, lace, carpets, rope, industrial fabric, hosiery and knitted garments or to quilt and embroider fabric. This unit group also includes workers who perform activities such as reproducing patterns, drawing-in and tying warps and setting up looms. They are employed by textile companies and by garment and mattress manufacturing companies.

Mobility among employers may be limited by differences in machines and products.

Progression to textile machinery mechanics and repairers or to supervisory positions is possible with experience and training.
